Description
Events

Are you a methods trainer or a PhD student planning to be a methods trainer? Do your students find ‘quantitative’ social science hard to follow? Are they put off by numbers?

You might be a research methods trainer for undergraduates in any area of social science, or a prospective methods trainer, perhaps a doctoral researcher interested in a career in academia. You might be a methods trainer for masters’ students, or you might simply want to integrate ‘quantitative’ data into your substantive social science teaching. If so, please participate in the free development and training events conducted by international methods experts, and help shape and share on-line teaching resources. Teaching ‘quantitative’ social science is relatively easy. Come and find out how.
